Mercon official partner in the Hyperloop Development Program

In Newsby Eveline Klomp

“For us #Hyperloop represents creating a new path together on how we fill in the requirements of a reliable and sustainable mobility in a 24/7 economy. This is an unique opportunity for Mercon to be part of an innovation where we can turn our high-quality technical knowledge and expertise into practical and large-scale production”.

Mercon got involved in the project for further improvement of the design, production, assembly for a 36m infrastructure prototype. Mercon has developed and produced an installation rig, fabricated and assembled flange connections and assembled all internals to three 12m long tubes. These tubes and internals were aligned within the highest tolerances and mounted, together with an expansion joint. The prototype is located and showcased in June 2021 at the location of BuildinG in Groningen.

Mercon is an international multidisciplinary contractor active in the maintenance and new build of tank storage, infrastructure (bridges and sluices), industrial services and special projects. Hyperloop is one of the special projects. Mercon stands for working together in a multidisciplinary safe technical work environment. We believe in the success that follows from long-term partnerships. With the partnership we are excited to be involved in Hyperloop Development Program.
